Re: Strategy and Aikido

The "strategy" seems to be harmonizing with the Tao in such a way that the attacker gets back what he puts in and nothing more. how does that statement jive with what Ueshiba Sensei said about [paraphrasing] "in real aikido the attacker would be killed", not wanting to show a lie to the emporer, or Yukawa having his arm broken in a demonstration?

Just currious...
